From what I understand, they can't block anymore tethering apps because they operate on the C block of spectrum and they can't charge extra just for using the device as a hotspot.

Now I have heard some talk that unlimited data plan users may be considered different, but since there soon won't be unlimited plans anymore for anyone, sort of a moot point.
Ya, I'm one of those unlimited users who may outright buy my next phone to stay that way. We'll see..
